Compression and level meters... [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

I am just messing around with compression in order to get a handle on it, and I just ran into something that just doesn't make sense to me. I have a level meter right before the compression plug in. It is set for peak and so is the gain reduction meter in the platinum compressor. The level meter is peaking at -7db, and when i put the the threshold on the compressor down to -6db, I am getting some gain reduction... how can It be letting anything into the compressor when the it has to be louder than -6db to get into it, and the track is only going up to -7db peak?
